A Victim of Mirthfulness.
CONFIDENTIAL DISCLOSURES OF AN OLD MAID.
I may safely sy that the organ of
mirxnimness nas teen the cbuio of most
of the misfortonei of my lite. While
still a small child, I exhibited the pro
pensity of laughiug at anything which
sirucK me as Demg ludicrous, no mat
ter where, when or how it was.
At one time,I went to a funeral with
my mother. It wag the funeral ol a
young lady who was very much be
loved, and of course lamented. Every
one was in tears when, on turning to
wards a window, I taw two men sit
ting, one of whom was noted for his
length of nose, the other because he
had none. It was too much for my
ritiblc-b I choked, coughed, aud
sneezed but it would not do; laugh 1
must, and laugh 1 did. Suddenly a
shadow loll across rny eyes.and a fleshy
protuberance ressmblimj a barbed hook
travelled some distance across my nose,
ana J tie aru these words pronounced in
my ear :
"Child, you may be the next victim
to the fell destroyer!"
This completed my overthrow, and
my mother, shaking me violently by
tne shoulders, took me home, declar
ing that i should never go anywhere 1
again till 1 knew how to behave my
When I went to schaol the same fate
followed me. I received more repri
mands and more punishments than any
ether six pupil:. Once when my
teacher had been scolding me, and was
just pronouncing pardon, I looked up,
ana perceivea me remains oi a pinch
ot snuff adhereing to the eud of bis
nose. Then, alas! woe was me that
When our committee came into
school I was always watching my
master's great hand and feet, and the
awkward way he had of rolling his
eyes ana hanging out his tongue : and
many are the scoldings I received over
the school's back. I laughed my way
from girlhood to maidenhood. At
length there came a time to me,as there
comes to all, when I was in love.
Hdward Payson was a youth whom
any lady might be proud to love, h'e
was gtntle and kind, and for a timi I
was able to asntrol my laughing gani
us while with him. f ly parents real
ly hoped that I had begun to improve.
One fcening he was unusually go
ber, I unusually guy. He wished to
converse soberly, 1 would not,and tried
to prevent liim from doing so. The
more sober and grave ho became, the
higher my spirits rose, till at length 1
vns above the eajth the clouds dan
cing about in the broad expanse of air.
1 leaped from one airy castle to anoth
er, till at length my lover, tired, and
no doubt disgusted, said :
"Amelia," he said in a husky voice,
"I had hoped that you were the one to
control my destinies, one who would
be my companion tnrough lifVs thick
maze a Iriend a wile. But I see
my mistake. I am friendless and alone,
aud must remain so. r orgtve me for
thinking to tarpe your free, wild spirit.

Then came another lover,light head
ed as myself. He was always joking,
always gay. l'eopie said: 'wnaia
match;' and looked upon the thing as
eettled. One evening he came to me
with a very solemn countenance, and

incon-titlently but foolishly. It ii a
very bad habit to use such expressions.

I inquired as to tho cause of your al
